Announcement: Remade (A Unique YA Serial Experience)

September 12th, 2016 Kristie Posted in Discussion, New Releases, Publishing News Comments Off on Announcement: Remade (A Unique YA Serial Experience)


There is an exciting new publishing start up called Serial Box – which publishes serials! Every week you get a new episode of hot fresh fiction delivered straight to your phone. Just like with TV their episodes are team written and take just about 40 minutes to read so you can get your fix and keep on moving. They also release simultaneously in audio and makes it easy to toggle back and forth with their shiny app, because they’re cool like that!

One of their upcoming serials is called ReMade! It is Serial Box’s first YA serial. It’s a mashup of Contemporary YA and Sci-Fi dystopia that has authors the likes of Kiersten White and Gwenda Bond in the writers room. And it starts September 14th! The first episode is currently available for free at their website! The first installment of ReMade will be available September 14, 2016 with a new episode releasing every Wednesday until the season finale in December!

For more about ReMade:

You live. You love. You die.

Now RUN.


Every minute, 108 people die. On October 14th, 2016, from 9:31-9:32 p.m. EDT, 23 of those deaths will be teenagers. Now they are humanity’s last hope for survival. Awakened in a world they barely recognize and hunted by mechanical horrors, these teens search for answers amidst the ruins of civilization. Fate, love, and loyalty face off in this adrenaline -pumping YA adventure.

The serial will unfold across 15 episodes and is team written by Matthew Cody, Carrie Harris, E. C. Myers, Andrea Phillips, Gwenda Bond, and Kiersten White.

Urban Fantasy Series Discussion Vote! (Round 1)

July 9th, 2015 Kristie Posted in Discussion 10 Comments »

At Dark Faerie Tales we have an affinity for urban fantasy series.  We want to switch things up a bit and let you vote on our next series read. Roxanne, Steph and Kristie will lead a discussion/review of that series one title at a time. For this initial discussion, we are limiting this to series that are under 6 books and series that we mostly have not reviewed. We are having a hard time narrowing this down and we would love your help! Reply in the comments below which series you would like to see us review. Pick your top two choices! Also, feel free to let us know if there is another series you would like us to consider in the future.

There are so many to choose from that we will most likely have two rounds of votes to narrow it down! In September, we will unveil which series was chosen with our first discussion. Thank you all for your help!

What YA Character Are You?

June 1st, 2015 Kaitlin Posted in Discussion 2 Comments »

You know those tween magazines with lots of drama and gossip? J-14, Yikes, and the like? Those were never my favorite, but there was always one section I gravitated towards when the neighbor’s copies accidentally ended up in our mailbox: the quizzes.

Through a series of questions they told you who you were, who you belonged with, what your summer style was. Flirty and fun? Harry Styles? It was like a slightly more accurate horoscope.

So I decided to do that with a group of YA characters. These are female, just for the sake of having more female POVs, but if anyone wants to request a male one or a book boyfriend one I’d be happy to oblige.

For now, find out who you are closest to in personality out of four very different female characters! It’s a short one, so it can’t take long! Let us know which character you are in the comments below!

Sweet EvilSplinteredBloodlinesRebel Belle

1. What is your favorite thing to do on a Friday night?

a) Creating fantastic artwork or designing new outfits.

b) Doing homework- you’d hate to have to worry about it Saturday. Or experimenting with some chemicals.

c) Partying somewhere, or out on the town having fun with friends!

d) Hanging out with your mom or a couple of friends. Nothing wild, just easy chatter, maybe some board games or cooking.

2. Describe your style.

a) Funky and different. Definitely not considered “in”, but it’s unique and it’s you. Isn’t that all that matters?

b) Something that looks interview-ready, sleek and productive. Not much bright makeup, only the naturals.

c) Whatever’s in, with a girly or sexy edge. You prepare a lot in the morning and it pays off- you look good.

d) Something comfortable and easy, nothing too flamboyant. You don’t want to stand out.

3. What’s your favorite subject in school?

a) Art, which you enjoy and aren’t just using for an easy A.

b) Every school subject is fun, but history is your favorite!

c) Can you say lunch? Screw it- you choose lunch.

d) You don’t have any huge preference. They’re all okayish.

4. You like someone. How do you approach this crush?

a) Talk to them, become friends. Hope they will eventually develop the same feelings, and until then, try to block them out.

b) You don’t have time for boys. If you ignore it, maybe it will go away?

c) Flirt, flirt, flirt!

d) Gaze quietly from afar. Let them make the first move.

5. How do you deal with tough times and/or danger?

a) Face it head on. There isn’t room for regret. Do what needs to be done.

b) Try to be strong, even if on the inside you’re very scared.

c) With the fierceness of a runway model or Beyonce.

d) Go into it armed with courage and love backing you. Have hope and do your best.

6. You see a stranger crying behind the school science building. What do you do?

a) Feel out the situation. Is it boyfriend-broke-up-with-me crying? Is it my-parents-are-divorcing? If the girl seems to need lots of help, you approach and try to comfort her.

b) She doesn’t seem to be in any danger, but she does seem very sad. Figure out someone who knows her and have them comfort her- after all, they understand her.

c) Ask around. Who is that girl? What’s wrong? Try to find some way to help out.

d) Approach immediately. Comfort and soothe her until she feels better, no matter how much time that takes.

mostly as: you are Alyssa from Splintered by A. G. Howard. You are original and unique, and try to pay no mind to other’s thoughts of you. You are easygoing and very artsy, with a good sense of style and confidence.

mostly bs: you are Sydney from Bloodlines. You love school and are very intelligent, and when needed, your strong and brave side emerges. You are very productive and realistic, with some self-doubt.

mostly cs: you are Harper from Rebel Belle. You’re popular, flirty, and fun- but you have a badass side that comes out when you need to defend your friends.

mostly ds: you are from Sweet Evil, as Anna. You are generally pretty shy, but very loving and with a strong moral compass. You are good at understanding other’s emotions and empathizing.
